An additional part of Oomiak’s work on the NewCold Melbourne 2 Chilled Store was the installation of OxyReduct a fire prevention system for Wagner out of Germany.
Wagner has been developing and realising technical fire prevention systems since 1976 and has established itself internationally as an expert in innovative fire protection solutions.
Conventional fire protection systems are passive, meaning that they only react once a fire has broken out. Wagner’s OxyReduct preventative oxygen reduction system, on the other hand, actively ensures maximum safety even before fires start. This avoids consequential damage of the type that often occurs when extinguishing with water or other agents, such as foam.
Wagner’s OxyReduct fire prevention system makes sure that fires cannot develop in the first place. By feeding a controlled supply of nitrogen into the protected area, it keeps oxygen concentration levels consistently below the ignition threshold of the combustible materials inside.
